The following list contains pre-defined vendor classes that are available in Windows 2000 DHCP server.

Collapse this tableExpand this table {| ! Class Data ! Class Name ! Description | MSFT 5.0 Microsoft Windows 2000 options Class that includes all Windows 2000 DHCP clients. MSFT 98 Microsoft Windows 98 options Class that includes all Windows 98 and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me) DHCP clients. MSFT Microsoft options Class that includes all Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows 2000 DHCP clients. |}

If you have non-Microsoft DHCP clients, you can define other vendor-specific classes on the DHCP server. When you define such classes, make sure the vendor class identifier that you define matches the identifier used by the clients. Back to the top The following list contains pre-defined user classes that are available in Windows 2000 DHCP server.

Collapse this tableExpand this table {| ! Class ID ! Class Type ! Description | Unspecified Default user class All DHCP clients that have no user class specified. RRAS.Microsoft Default Routing and Remote Access class All Dial-Up Networking (DUN) clients. Bootp Default Bootp class All Bootp clients |}

In addition to these pre-defined classes, you can also add custom user classes for Windows 2000 DHCP clients. When you configure such classes, you must specify a custom identifier that corresponds to the user class defined on the DHCP server.
